Celtic legend Tom Boyd feels Dundee were surely happy to concede just one goal against the Bhoys in the Scottish Premiership clash between the two teams last weekend. 

Brendan Rodgers’ team, who beat the Dee 1-0 at Dens Park, courtesy of Scott Brown’s 47th minute strike, have been in rampaging goalscoring form in the league this season.

Celtic have scored 24 goals in seven Premiership outings in the present campaign, the highest in the division, with Hearts coming a distant second in the list with 14 goals in eight matches to their name.

And Boyd, who thinks Celtic put in a controlled performance against Dundee, is of the opinion that Paul Hartley’s side would have been pleased after conceding just once against a free-scoring Bhoys team.

“It was a very controlled, very confident display, no arrogance at all”, he said on Celtic TV.


“We’re going from strength to strength.

"Teams are fearing us because of our ability in attack.

“We’re scoring goals in the league for fun. I think over three a game up to the weekend.

“Dundee will be happy with conceding only one against Celtic.”

Celtic, who are yet to lose a game in the Scottish Premiership this season, currently find themselves four points clear at the top of the table with a game in hand.
